It is no secret that golf has changed my life in many positive aspects over the short time I have been playing. Golf has given me many things to think about in my life. It has changed the way I approach things and how I make good decisions that give me a positive outcome. Many positive events have been able to change my life over the past few years, because I started golf. At the age of fifteen, the end of my freshman year in high school, I started golf.
I thought to myself, “Uh-oh, this can’t be good!” He then proceeded to give me another speech and tried to get my head back in the game. As I walked up to hit my next shot off the tee box I took a deep breath, I set up to my golf ball, and I hit it straight down the middle. Although this hole was one of the best that day, I still never got back to how I usually play. The lesson I learned was that nothing in life will ever be perfect. You will have good days and bad days, but you can’t let that destroy your confidence.
I started shooting and it looked good until we had to move back to 15 meters. That is when I started to shoot bad. That was normal for me because every shooter has trouble shooting at that distance. But when we got done I added up my score and I was happy. It was a good day because I had shot a 270 out of
However, time changed and everything changed. I started to enjoy golf, more and more once I started getting used to it. Golf gave a lot of friends and opportunities. For example, I have made a lot of friends who were useful for my family’s business. Jewelry was my family’s business.
If I just practiced harder that day or played better that tryout or that game. But, I can’t change it no matter how much I wish to. I am stuck with the career I have had. I have played in many games through my life. Too many to even attempt to remember.
I surprised myself by getting to golf varsity as the fourth golfer out of six. I accomplished this by putting in many long hours to become the best golfer I could be. I even placed first out of all the other girls at a meet. I will never forget that magical moment. The sound of my teammates and coach cheering as they heard my name being called out.
I walked into the first day of tryouts thinking I could not do it, but by the second day I walked in having total confidence in myself because I knew I was good and I had these tryouts in the bag. It was important because golf is my everything and even though I bring myself down about it, I love golf and I would have regretted it so much if I could not to do what I love. Making it felt like one of the biggest accomplishments, I have ever made and it really boosted my self esteem. From this experience I learned that even when you have doubts in yourself that should not affect how much effort you put into whatever it is that you are
I have a lot of personal goals set that are attainable for me but require effort to be put behind them. Some of my goals fall in the academic category but, most fall into the athletics field. I think the reason I set goals in these two fields forsay is because I know that any goal set under these categories cannot and will not be reached without doing some work. For example, there is no NFL player or coach that has not worked their butt off their whole life to get where they are now heck some even get up at 5;30 in the morning to go get some extra workouts in because their dedicated and that is what goals are all about. To reach a goal you have to be fully dedicated there is no well im tired so im not gonna work hard today.
That little decision of my father to take me to the driving range changed my whole view of my future. Ever since that day, I have aspired and worked hard to try and achieve my dream of becoming a professional golfer. That day began with my father taking me to the Weston hills country club driving range. This was the first time I've ever played golf and I was pretty good. The way it felt to hit a good shot shook
It worked. The fierce opposition fueled my fire for greatness. Woman golfers are not unheard of, there are leagues globally, who says that I can't be a golfer too. I practiced every single day and ended up teaching myself how to perfect my game. By the end of the season, I went from the girl who wouldn't be allowed to finish a match, to the top golfer on the team.
